This traditional middle stone barn is set slightly back from Castle Road with a separate vehicle access that extends around the end house before opening into a generous yard area behind. Across the yard is a separate detached range of general storage buildings which under the approved scheme are to be demolished and replaced in part with a new build detached double garage. Adjacent to the barn and shown edged blue on the sale plan is a block of meadow and pasture land extending in total to about 7.519 hectares (18.58 acres) which is available for sale by separate negotiation, either as a whole or in part.
